A major update to the BIC2g images is now available on our website at /bic2g.
Much of the Oracle software has been updated. A complete list is available at our website. The biggest news about this release is that it runs on Windows Server 2008 64-bit Standard Edition. This means that you can now apportion more than 3gb of physical RAM to the server, dramatically improving the performance of the image. This also means that whatever laptop, desktop, or server you use to host the image must be able to host a virtualized 64bit OS.
We now have a single offering: a VMware virtual machine including a license of Windows Server 2008 64-bit Standard Edition. Per Microsoft licensing rules, we cannot deliver an image without including a license of Windows Server 2008.
